Stitch Demonstrations

Stitchie Fingers is open for all to learn a new stitch each month. It is a great opportunity to learn new or refresh embroidery stitches, from the basic ones to the more complicated. We are coming together for a short time at the end of the meeting whilst having our tea.

If you are starting for the first time please bringing a square of calico approx. 12 inches and a small embroidery hoop, embroidery needle, thread (Floss) of your choice and small scissors. You will be able to buy threads from the sales table if you do not have any.

Click the name of the stitch to see Rosie, Gill or Kate demonstrating a selection of stitches.
